Moment of silence for WVa. miners
As investigators continue to investigate the cause of the blast that killed 29 men in the worst U.S. mining disaster since 1970, the governor of West Virginia has asked for a moment of silence Monday at 3:30 p.m. to remember the victims.
West Virginia Gov. Joe Manchin said the tribute would mark one week since the explosion. Virginia's Gov. Robert McDonnell has also asked Virginians to join in the observance and to look for ways to help their neighbors in West Virginia.
